Anyone with sizing recs and/or fit/construction opinions on the slip on sneakers (not the slippers)?

Looking back in the thread, been asked a few times, but can't find any definitive first hand info.
I have normal width feet with a brannock of 8.5. I size down one, size 7.5, for all viberg boots in the 1035/2030/2050/2020 last. For the tie on sneakers in the 1003 last, I wear the same size 7.5. But for the slip on sneaker in the 1005 last, I size down an extra half size to a size 7

Super helpful. And for the 1005 slip sneaker, do you find it comparable in comfort and weight to other slip on sneaker brands? I've never handled a non-boot Viberg. A bit skeptical

It's pretty robust. Comfort takes some time as the leather relaxes but it's definitely heavier and more robust than vans for example. I can tell with all of my viberg sneakers they will last much longer though

Oh boy. I went a size down. Might have some slip-ons going to market soon, we'll see.
Well, I'm probably a 9 or an 8.5 in slipons, according to @bry2000 and @WatchesCars (the name just clicked for me). Current price is a bit steep for me, but if anyone is looking to resell lightly used a bit lower, pm me. Especially intrigued by the green and the cxl.

Ooh, just noticed a key difference between the slip on listed in the archive sale and those listed currently on the site. The archives ones say "cemented construction", while the non-archive ones say " a modified channeled insole Goodyear welt construction." They look identical otherwise. Is this real? Kind of a dealbreaker for such expensive sneakers if they are truly cemented construction and can't be resoled, unless I'm misunderstanding the meaning of these terms

Hey,
I need your help finding my size with last 1035.
I have a pair of Alden Van last size 11.5D US.
Camina - 10.5UK D width almost consistently and sometimes can go 11UK D width.
Parkhurst - Size 10.5D.

Which do you think will work for me?

Someone is selling a pair of the WF Maryam boots in size 13 EE because the ankle opening is too big. Looking at it, it looks huge - is it always this big on size 13 boots? Or did they increase ankle volume for the EE? I previously reached out to Viberg about this (in 2020), and I was told that only ball width would be changing with the widths, not volume elsewhere.
